I love listening to all the people in Washington whining that President Trump isn’t deploying tariffs for their “proper” use. When will they understand that Trump was not sent to Washington for business as usual?
And that he was sent to stop the unlimited illegal immigration — and maybe some legal immigration to — cascading into the country.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Mexico apprehended about 1,000 migrants after President Trump threatened to slap tariffs on the country over its lax border policies.
About 200 Mexican military police intercepted the caravan walking north along a highway in southern Mexico on Wednesday, according to the Associated Press. The migrants told officers they planned to travel to the U.S. and claim asylum.
Some migrants resisted and others fled into the forest on either side of the highway, but the vast majority of those in the caravan complied with orders from Mexican officials. Hundreds of migrants agreed to go to a migrant detention center.
At the detention center, the migrants will be processed and, if needed, be transported back to their home countries.
The mass arrest comes days before Trump plans to place 5% tariff on all Mexican imports.
